There are two kinds of proxies. Your company uses a forward proxy to limit where your employees are permitted to surf. ISPs use proxies to limit the options that their members have. They don't limit destination web sites (although they could exclude known porn sites), but they limit their members to HTTP and FTP. This limits some of their hacking options. Also, the queries to the remote web sites appear to be coming from the proxy instead of from the individuals user's terminal because the proxy masks the user address by replacing it with its own.
I know what a proxy is, thanks.

The question I had, was a contextual one, what does the non-sequitur of "firewall---->proxy---->network" have to do with this thread? How does it further any understanding? Relate in some way to pfSense, ClearOS, Intrusion Detection, Snort, or a big honking machine running a router distro in overkill?

I liked the article and used it in part to set up my router... But I guess I did a pretty big no no as well as far as how i set up everything. I built a low power server, duel core I3, and loaded ESXi 5 on it, and the pfsence for firewall, a zfs server based on zfs/open indinana with 9tb of storage, and a few other os's to play with. I am looking for a good software to run dnla server on to server movies to everything on my network.
